Doodle Devotions WK 5

If you are new to my blog, please go HERE to catch up on what I’m providing through “DOODLE DEVOTIONS

Hello!

This week we are studying Abraham and Sarah.

Below is a teaching video, brought to you by Crossroads Community Church Kids Club!

CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO ABOUT ABRAHAM AND SARAH

Remind your kids that God made a promise to Abraham and God’s promises are good.  God is always faithful and wants us to be faithful as well.

God promised that a great nation would come from Abraham. He promised that Abraham’s name would be great among the Earth, and that all people would be blessed through him.  God always keeps His promises.  God wants us to keep our promises too. 

Ask your Kids…

What kind of promises can you make that you can keep?  Allow children to respond.  

We can promise to be nice to our brother or sister, share with our friends or help our parents with something around the house.  Encourage your kids to think of a promise they can make.  Let them know, that keeping a promise is very hard, and they will need God’s power to follow through. We can stop and talk to God anytime, and He will help us!

Give them a piece of paper and ask them to draw a picture of the promise they have made. 

Write I promise to …….. on the top of the page. 

Hang the picture somewhere your child will see it daily, and explain that you want them to look at the promise each day, and remember to ask God to help them KEEP their promise:) Tell them, “God keeps His promises, and he wants you to keep your promise too.

Today’s Doodle Devotion, is just a “slice” of Abraham’s story! I pray that as you create opportunities to teach your children about God’s faithfulness, they will learn that He is trustworthy. The Story of Abraham can help them understand that good things take time, but if we know our God is faithful to His Word, we can trust that the wait is always worth it!

Bless you!

Doodle Devotions WK 2

Hello! I hope that the pages I’ve created have been a help for some of you! It is my heart, to come alongside others to encourage and support!

I’m especially sensitive to young Mom’s because I believe the call God has placed on their lives is of the utmost importance!

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” -Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Click on the image above FOR THE VIDEO LESSON

God had a plan for His family all along. He knew that Adam and Eve would make some bad choices, which would separate them from their Holy Father. The thing is, God is all about love, and had a rescue plan in place from the very beginning. We are ALL made in God’s image, and through Christ, we are adopted as sons and daughters of the King. We are a Royal family.

Below are some pages for you to print and complete. Use the Doodle exercises to practice drawing people, and then add them to your Family Tree and “Snap Shot” page.

Note that the The family tree is not “Biblically complete!” I want your kids to know that from the time God created Adam and Eve, HE had THEM in mind, and one day, they would be born into God’s family.

The next 3 pages are Challenge Worksheets for Scripture Study for ages 6 and above. I use this 3,2,1 Method of study myself, and often teach it to adult classes. It’s a great structure of studying God’s Word verse by verse.

Below are step by step Photos of the Floppy Ear Dog Craft. Written instructions are on the activity page above.

Needed: Printed Dog page, scissors, glue stick

I initially watched the video below for this cute idea. It might help to watch it first, though it took me some time to figure out dimensions and how to make it work! It’s quick!

Dog demo starts at about the 0:24 mark

Choose to print in Black and White or Color. IF you print in Black and White you can color it in yourself!

Click on the image above for the pdf, then click on the title to print
(it is best to print this on cardstock)
Next, cut out each piece
On the background square, Cut a slit where you see a grey line
It’s easier to cut if you gently fold, but try not to create a crease line
Glue the tongue to the Ears like above
I added this tan “body piece” in the wrong order. Do this first, then work on the
dark brown face:)
Apply some glue to the back of the face piece (stay above the area where the face lays on top of the slit. You only need about the width of your glue stick at the top.) 3/4 of the face remains “free and unglued.” Line up the top straight edge of the face with the top edge of the background square. The tab should be sticking up above that.
Glue on eyes and nose
Flip the whole thing over again and fold the outside edges of the background piece to the back. (About 1/4 inch) Once folded, the final back piece should line up to be the same size with the edges folded down.
Fold the ears down, gently pull tongue to make ears lift up. He is listening to God’s Word!

The Last craft activity on the “Activity Page-Do It” are the “Encouragement Cards.” If it weren’t for our current Covid 19 status, these would be perfect to leave hanging on a mailbox, left for a delivery person, or hanging on your neighbor’s door. Save those ideas for another day, and make them for your family, or whoever you are quarantined with!

OPTION 2: You could take a photo of a finished tag hanging in YOUR HOME for someone you can’t be with in person THEN TEXT the photo to them!!! That would surely brighten someone’s day:)

I LOVE MUSIC, AND I LOVE MUSIC MAE from Crossroads Community Church Kids Club.
Each of my weekly post will include video lessons and songs from this FREE resource. KIDS, TRY THE CUP MOVES AND PLAY ALONG WITH THE VIDEO!

My goal for posting is EVERY FRIDAY, so that adults have a few days during the weekend to look over the material for the following week. Some of you may choose to pick a few activities/lessons for use on Sunday morning. I’d love to hear how YOU are using these resources! It would help me a great deal in making these better for you!

The material this week took me much longer than I expected, so I couldn’t get this post ready until today! It was fun for me, I hope you enjoy it with your kids!

Much love,

Mail a Letter : Project Annabelle’s Alphabet

Mail a Letter: Annabelle's AlphabetAnnabelle is loving her letters. (See original post here) I started out by mailing her a small candy treat with each letter…(That’s what Mimi’s are for, right?) Well, I guess I knew she might like the treat best…and yes, she did:)  So, now I am sending her non-edible extras like Dora the Explorer stickers.  Someday, if my dear daughter sends me a pic of the “mailbox expedition” I might post the results. Until then, 15 more to go!

Mixed Media Wood Block

I was looking for a fun way to use some of my “odds & ends.”  This piece starts with a simple wood block (purchased at Michaels) & Liquitex ceramic stucco texture gel mixed with white gesso. I layered burlap ribbon and inexpensive white Tulle. The outlines were done with an “Ink Black” Derwent Inktense Water color pencil.

Alcohol Markers & Re-purposed Make-up Jars

Alcohol Inks & repurposed makeup jars

In an earlier post I wrote about a sample make-up bag “kit” my husband brought home for me from a recent trade show.  Thoughtful as it was, I didn’t have much use for the make-up, but I loved painting the bag with my paint pens.  Today, I cleaned out the jars and decided to give them some fun color with  Alcohol Markers.

Alcohol Markers (Spectrum Noir, Copic) can do more than color stamped images…  Not only are they beautifully vibrant and JUICY on paper but they can color other surfaces like metals, glass, and acrylic.

When your adopted “niece” gets into Harvard, you should do something special!  I wanted to create a framed piece she could take with her to school….Something that would make her smile…something that would remind her not only of who she is, but of “WHOSE” she iS.

This is a gift for a beautiful girl who comes from a family devoted to words:)  It was great fun to write and laugh along with them…treasuring sweet Emma, the graduate.

Ribbon and Gymnastics : Great Scrapbook Project for Kids

Easy Scrapbook Project for Kids

I meet weekly with High School girls to do Bible Study, Crafts, and Baking.  I want to provide a safe place for girls to talk, encourage one another and hear truth in love…

(Titus 2)

This week I have an amazingly talented and disciplined group from a local gymnastics team.  They are putting together scrapbooks for the graduating seniors.  It has been such fun to hear about life as a gymnast:)

IMG_7909Of course the project includes Ribbon!

The girls joke around about how they all have animal print “leo’s” (leotards) so naturally they chose animal print papers.

I had the girls cut out “Base Cards”  that measure  5 1/2″ X 7 1/4 “

&

Printed paper taped on top that measures 4 1/2″  X 6 1/2″

(allowing room for ring holes)

Rings were purchased at Staples.

Each printed Rectangle is ready for a team snapshot.

We will be adding cute little pockets on some of the pages for team members to write & insert  encouraging notes.

I am so blessed to have the time to “craft” with young girls.  It provides such a fun and interactive vehicle for me to make a difference in the lives of girls who can get so easily discouraged by the culture and the fast times we live in…

We’re running out of  ribbon, so I think I’ll get some fresh ideas from
